I dropped in for supper after an event and enjoyed a great burger and fries. Didn't have beer since I had to drive, but it killed me since they have such great beer here. i'll be back soon with friends

Group of us stopped for lunch and we all had the burger special which was a smoked burger ($14). Apparently this place had a lot of success with "burger week" that this promotion has continued. Burger came with fries or we had a choice rice or potato. For $3 we could have switched for a salad. Service was great and... More

If you're looking for something that is not a typical bar joint, this place has excellent beer and ambience. Very nice. Worth stopping into.

We had initially heard good things about Rockbottom but when we got there we quickly realized it was just about the beer. We enjoyed sampling the different beers they are good quality.

Wide variety of items to choose from and the food is always hot and tasty although the service is sometimes spotty. Burgers are real good and cost about $12 to $14.

I love craft beer so a visit to Rock Bottom was de rigueur! I was joined by two friends and we enjoyed the beers. Unfortunately, the burger I had orderd for my meal was not good. It lacked flavour...almost like cardboard. And it was at best warm. Thankfully the beer was good. The food? Not so much!

We had an evening of local beer, wing and nachos. It was a real Pub night. The craft beer was excellent. This is a great spot with lots of character.

Went for a lunch time midweek getaway. Fabulous atmosphere and educated friendly staff. All their burgers are ground in house and never frozen. If you want to try the most delicious and mouth watering burger in Halifax, than this is the place to go.
